You have a short in the cord. If you knew where the short was, you could possibly repair it. However, I would strongly suggest buying a new iron. An iron is an appliance that can burn your house down even when it's in GOOD working order. You should be able to buy a decent iron for around $30, and I would say the peace of mind alone would be worth it. Hope this helps,
Chad

Iron will not stay on


More than likely your power cord has a broken wire. Plug the iron in and mover the cord around. See if you can find the broken wire. Typically where the cord comes out of the iron and right at the plug. Or replace the whole cord. Your local hardware store, youtube, or menards can show you how. Very easy to do. I tend to stay away from home depot.

Display light does not stay on when I begin to iron; The #1 acrylic flashes off and on when the light is on.


Depending on the models, most irons only have the light on when its heating up and when the thermostart switches off it cut off power and hence the light goes off.

I have two irons. one if them won't turn on anymore and i noticed the light kept fading out. the light on the other one flickers and it stops working halfway through straightening. any solutions?


Most likely it is the power cord. We have the same iron and the power cord has a break in it just as it comes out of the swivel. You can turn it on and hold the power cord tight up against the swivel and it should stay on. I was able to fix it by stripping the cord down to the wire soldering and adding shrink tubing to the connection. That lasted for about 1 year and it has done it again. I may have to replace it but not sure how to take it apart.

Iron won't stay running. I'm pretty sure it's the cord because if you move the cord the power is restored. Would a new cord solve the problem and where do you get a new cord?


With modern iron it can be difficult to renew the cord due to the special screws they use when making them. It does sound like the power cord is damaged. It may be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.

Hi.
If you move the cord up/down/side to side and the iron works then you have a problem with the cord-damaged/broken or the pins(bent) and the wall power outlet pins(gone wide) are not making a GOOD connection.BE CAREFUL YOU WOULD/COULD TRIP THE FUSE AND ALSO DAMAGE THE POWER OUTLET-BURN/ARC AND CAUSE SOME DAMAGE.check the pins and connection.This will be a step by step checking of the cord and connection pionts.
Hope this helps
